Stealth has been in development for over a year with the actual Publisher of Short Fuse Media Group, Sean Mack at the helm writing the plots along with series creator William Satterwhite churning out the dialog. After a ton of work going into this project Stealth is finally ready to take center stage as the newest addition to our stellar superhero line up of titles spearheading our Red Band division of titles.

Stealth follows the story of Allen White as he navigates Terminus City as a school teacher by day attempting to educate the youth on real life issues and why those real life issues should matter to them. However, by night, Allen provides an entirely different education to the underworld and evildoers of Terminus City as the vigilante hero known to the public as Stealth.

So why are we bringing this project to Kickstarter? The short answer...we need the funding to continue to produce and print these books! The long answer....we LOVE being a part of the RESPONSIBLE Kickstarter community that commit to delivering new and AWESOME projects to our supporters within the community. And to be quite honest, we feel that this title fills a much needed void in regards to diverse content on our roster as well as in indie comics overall, similar to how the newly released Black Panther movie from Marvel Studios is filling a similar void in movie theaters.

We felt this way so much so that we partnered up with multiple charitable organizations like Hero Nation (Ypsilanti) and The Mighty Jon Youth Movement to offer free issues of Stealth #0 to over 500 kids during the youth screenings of the film!

We feel that this project can have a greater amount of reach to fans that will appreciate new and diverse superhero stories using a direct market approach as opposed to going through costly distributors. We've proven this fact with our "#WeAlwaysDeliver Campaign Promise" that has allowed us to deliver our books directly to our backers immediately following the completion of our campaigns!!! Our aim and GUARANTEE is to continue  that trend with this project as well. 

All of the funding will go towards the production of new issues including expenses for the creative team to make this project perfect! The books are complete with only some fine tuning being done to them!!! Other than  checking a last round for editorial concerns, we're ready to head off to the printer so we can get these books into your hands!!! Check out some of the pages below!

We have some really cool rewards and really wanted to focus on the core of what this campaign was about so we tried to keep it pretty simple. Check out a more detailed look below at some of the rewards that we have lined up for this campaign.

For starters, we truly felt that this campaign wouldn't be right without going back to the early adventures of Stealth when he was first getting started in Terminus City via the Life & Times of Allen White Graphic Novel Preview.

Next up is the Stealth #0 Special Limited Preview Edition that we released as a primer for this series. Following this campaign, we'll never be offering this title again as there were only a limited number of copies printed. 

We also have the official 32 Page Giant Sized debut issue of Stealth #1 in all of its glory!!! This issue is a phenomenal debut that perfectly introduces you to Stealth and the inner workings of Terminus City. We are  extremely proud of this book as the production team really kicked it up a notch to produce an amazing comic. And yes, as awesome as the cover is, the interiors are from the same team (as that is a staple that we are pretty consistent with).

If you just want a fix of various comics from our Red Band Division, we are offering our Red Band Bundle as a digital or physical reward  featuring ALL of the titles that are available from our Red Band line including Stealth #1!

We do, however, enjoy seeing talented artist giving their take on our characters. And this project is no different. So we brought on Zenescope artist Sean Hill to illustrate a limited edition Variant Cover B. As you can see, Sean totally KILLED IT on this cover!!!

We didn't stop there though as we also brought on Image Comics artist Caanan White for another very special limited print edition virgin variant cover (CVR C). What's special about this book is that it will be exclusively printed in Black and White as this is a staple that we have done with several titles within our Red Band division and these versions always look AMAZING!

We also threw in a few items of apparel for you to show Stealth some love with our "Gear Up" Rewards.

Of course any Kickstarter campaign from us wouldn't be complete without the option of getting custom action figures of our characters (or your own) so check out the packaging and figure for Stealth!

We've also brought back the Cameo Cover Variant so if you want yourself or your character featured on the cover with Stealth this would be the perfect option for you.

We're also using this campaign as the soft debut for our Indieverse Unlimited Action Figure Line where you can be the first to get an official Stealth action figure or even an action figure of your own original character, courtesy of our new division Legion XIV Productions. We've been working on transitioning away from custom figures in order to launch a full action figure line featuring our characters and this is merely the first phase as we have a already been planning the first WAVE.

Our third stretch goal will help us celebrate the one year anniversary of Stealth debuting with Short Fuse Media Group as we revisit the Heroes: Ignited Anthology where Stealth made his first appearance with us. Every backer will receive the digital PDF of the anthology as well as a digital PDF of Indy Comic Premiere Magazine that features an interview with Stealth series creator William Satterwhite talking about the series.

Our fourth stretch goal unlocks an AWESOME connected pin up featuring our entire Red Band line up starting with Stealth. Each of the following stretch goals unlock a new pin up that connects to the image. But we wanted to make our next stretch reward a bit different...so hitting funding milestones will surely unlock the entire connecting pin up. However, hitting 200 backers will unlock this entire pin up as well. Backers receiving digital rewards will only get the digital image and backers getting physical rewards will get physical prints of each unlocked pin up.

Risks and challenges

As we did on our previous two campaigns......THIS CAMPAIGN WILL BEGIN DELIVERING REWARDS THE SAME WEEK THE CAMPAIGN ENDS!!!

We've managed all of the risks associated with this project by doing the leg work before this campaign's launch.

We understand the importance of fulfilling our promises and always ensure that all of our supporters receive their rewards. And we always find ways to sneak extra swag into our reward packages as a thank you for the patience in supporting our projects on the front end and patiently waiting for them to be completed and delivered....so we can focus on the fun part.....making comics!!!

It's because of your continued support that we are able to make these AWESOME comics! And for that we truly appreciate ALL of our backers and keep a wide open form of communication for you all to reach us at any time.

So what are you waiting for! Check out the rewards to the right and sign up to get in on the action! Share this campaign with your friends and family that LOVE comics like us. And stay tuned for more announcements throughout this entire campaign. Thanks for checking out this campaign. We hope you will become a backer.
